Rocky. Have seen it a zillion times and love it every time. Forget about the sequels, the original is one of the best movies of alltime, IMO.

Raging Bull is a classic too, but just doesn't hold the replay value, but the boxing scenes by Scorcese are pure genius.

not really a fan of any of these movies, but I guess Rocky is okay.

When you hear of young boxers being inspired by a movie, it's Rocky they talk about that inspired them.

Glad to see ROCKY getting the votes.
The way this movie gets crapped on in DVDTALK I was surprised.
